A vital piece of alternative comic history about black culture by black cartoonists.  

Inspired by magazines like Mad and traditional superhero comics, Real Deal magazine was a self-published,independent comic book created in the 1990s by Lawrence Hubbard (a.k.a “RawDog”) and H.P. McElwee (a.k.a. “R.D. Bone”). Peopled with a cast out of a blaxploitation movie ― convicts, hustlers, drug addicts,crack whores, car thieves,and murderers ― these cult-classic comics straddle the line between satirizing and showing the harsh realities of urban life.
